Ohiofarmgirl's Adventures in The Good Land is largely a fish out of water tale about how I eventually found my footing on a small farm in an Amish town. We are a mostly organic, somewhat self sufficient, sustainable farm in Ohio. There's action and adventure and I'll always tell you the truth about farming.

Snow Day 2013

Finally! We got a little snow to go along with our bitter cold. Yesterday was our first real snow day of 2013.

This little hen, one of my favorites, was unsure of the white stuff.

The dusting we got gave everyone something to talk about. Today, tho, we should be in for another snow - up to 4 inches which is kind of big news around here.

Easy Nibbles, no need to hurry!

Nibbles couldn't be stopped from waddling on down to get some pine needles.

I think she looks pretty good. I'm guessing 3 babies this year.

And the runner ducks weren't exactly running but they thought the snow was pretty good.

Runners, not running.

Speaking of ducks. Would your look at this handsome drake! He's here temporarily - he's on his way to someone else but my lady duck just thinks he is the most handsome guy she's every seen. I think he's striking.

You know who you are, look at this dandy!

Of course the dogs loved the snow. I wanted to show my friend, SD, how long Zander's legs are getting. He's very tall these days. Our Bubby is getting very, very big.

Zander and Ti love the snow.

Our beautiful Kai made a funny snow face.

Isn't she funny with her tongue hanging out? Kai! Such a goof.

Happy Friday everyone! Are you having a snow day?

Looking at your second pic I was like, "Aw, when did you get a furry hippo?" hehehe. Nibbles is as big as a house!

I got some snow today =) wish it had came a few hours earlier (It started snowing at like 9:00) so I could get a snow day.

I didn't have to go outside for much though, so it didn't bother me. Is it bad I'm envious of your animals?

Gorgeous bird. I put out a scrap piece of cardboard for my hens to come out on...

Thanks Robin! Hope that you do NOT get all this freezing rain.

Yay! thanks Vicki! I think just 3. or 47.

Anthony, I've been laughing about Nibs being a furry hippo for days!

hi AnimalPower! Did some of your snow melt today? And nope its not bad - you'll have your own farm one day.

Thanks Nancy - and what a great idea to put cardboard down. Sometimes we'll put straw down to lure the hennies out.
